Many Americans have become accustomed to President Trump’s lies. But as regular as they have become, the country should not allow itself to become numb to them. So we have catalogued nearly every outright lie he has told publicly since taking the oath of office. Updated: The president is still lying, so we've added to this list, taking it through Nov. 11, and provided links to the facts in each case.

Some good publicity for Norwegian Air on their new transatlantic route.

A flight from New York to London has broken the record for the fastest ever journey in a subsonic passenger jet, touching down after just over five hours.

The Norwegian Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner was pushed by a powerful jet stream as it travelled across the Atlantic and touched down 53 minutes earlier than expected.

It set off from JFK at 11.44am local time before reaching a top speed of 776mph and landing at London Gatwick at 9.57pm GMT on Monday.

The flight clocked up a journey time of five hours and 16 minutes, three minutes faster than the previous record set by a British Airways flight in 2015.
